Real Madrid clinches playoff spot after Fenerbahce loss

Real Madrid has become the second team to reach the EuroLeague playoffs and will play in the postseason for another year.

The “Whites” (20-9 in the standings) would qualify for the postseason with a Fenerbahce loss and this is what happened on Tuesday night, when the Turkish powerhouse lost to Armani Milano at home (75-82).

Hence, and with five games to go for the regular season finale, Real Madrid can’t drop outside the playoff zone and is also close to the home-court advantage.

The Spanish powerhouse currently sits alone in second place, just one victory behind league leaders Oympiacos (21-8), the only other playoffs qualifier to date. The two teams are the favorites for a Top-2 finish as well.

Real will take on Virtus Bologna (road), Fenerbahce (home), Partizan (road), Bayern Munich (home) and Maccabi Tel-Aviv (road) in their remaining five games.
